ANKENY, Iowa—Faith Baptist Bible College (FBBC) is pleased to announce plans to add a new Early Childhood Education Program, which is tentatively scheduled to begin the fall semester of 2023.

FBBC plans to offer a two-year associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education and an endorsement with the four-year Elementary Education degree. The Elementary Education degree, combined with this endorsement, would provide the credentials to teach and care for children from birth through sixth grade.

“We are excited about offering this program because it will help to meet the growing need for early childhood educators in our Christian schools and churches,” said Dr. Mark Stupka. “The Early Childhood Program will also broaden the scope and effectiveness of our existing Teacher Education Program.”

FBBC is seeking the right person to lead this new program: a director who would develop the Early Childhood Education Program, construct and teach courses, and advise students. Interested applicants can find out more details and begin the application process here.
